38 | Overdrive | December 2017 I n Overdrive's annual CSA's Data Trail update this year, after a few years of decline in the totals overall, RigDig's count of inspections associated with a U.S. Department of Transportation number increased by more than 4 percent. For- tunately for operators, those additional thousands of inspections can be attribut- ed in part to an infl ux of inspections that contained no violation. All but eight of the 48 continental United States showed small to marked increases in the percentage of inspections that were clean, which helps a carrier's CSA scores. Last year was the fi rst full year to pass since those scores were pulled behind Increasing inspections are back, but reduced violations, more clean inspections and a focus on crash-related behavior add measure of fairness to CSA.
